Child Tax Credit Payments For 2021

The upcoming child tax credit payments for the current year will be very important for you, assuming that you have been receiving the earlier checks. For this year, several qualifying families will be receiving half of the amount of the CTC Stimulus check through monthly installments, with the other half of the money coming in through one payout during the time of filing taxes. Some of the parents who have complicated tax issues, or have shared custody of their kids have chosen to opt-out of the monthly check for this year. 

What Is The Child Tax Credit Payment Schedule?

The next child tax credit payment comes out on the 15th of September, and individuals have to understand that they would be receiving only half of the payments this year, while the rest of them will be coming through in 2022 when one files their taxes.

This would be the case until you inform the agency that you are looking towards unenrolling from the advance payments to receive another payment next year. This implies that your single largest payment for the next year would be around $1,800 for every child. Till then, one would be receiving a total of around six smaller payments for this year. 

For the child tax credit, advance payments have been deemed as optional, for even though several American families are eligible for this, there are still some that don’t qualify. In the event that you can feel a change in your household situation, you can definitely decide to opt-out of the payment- to avoid repaying the agency. Remember that the next deadline for opting out of monthly payments is on the 4th of October at 9 pm. 

In order to stop advance child tax credit payments, the agency has stated that one must unenroll three days before the first Thursday of the next month. Also, once you have unenrolled, it wouldn’t be possible for you to reenroll, although the agency has stated it would have that option later.
